- Start just like you would any other design... start filling the coffee cup up nicely and preserve the crema canvas.
- Start pouring off to one side of the cup (left or right, doesn't matter) and you will see the liquid in the cup start to swirl in one direction. (It is also an option to pre-rotate your wrist before pouring so that you can rotate the cup while drawing the wave, making the wave wrap around almost the entire cup.)
- Move the tip of the pitcher closer to the surface and increase the pour speed as you start drawing the beginnings of a rosetta. This is the "wave", which is really just an unfinished rosetta. The wave should wrap around the cup, being affected by how early or late you start drawing and also how fast your pour speed and swirling action is.
- As you finish up the wave - without pinching off the pour - move back toward the middle and draw a heart.
Enjoy wave heart making!
